My magical journey began when I met this extraordinary teacher whose insight and gentle manner were illuminating and uplifting. She helped me understand the meaning of ‘Mindfulness’ to others and myself alike. She taught me to be kind to myself. ..She guided me in working through emotions. Learning to meditate with Jill and practicing meditation every day has helped me clear the cobwebs out of my mind, I am able to focus and think clearly. My mind feels calm and I have energy and enthusiasm for life…There are no words to express the gratitude I feel toward you Jill. Simply put, Thank you for being my guide. Its an honor to know you.

Feeling Overwhelmed

Stress is not always a bad thing; It’s a normal part of life. It is what propels us forward to make decisions, it motivates us to succeed and it helps us clarify goals and motivations. It’s when we become overwhelmed by our circumstances and feel “stressed out” that problems can emerge.

Life can pass us by as we ruminate over past regrets or worry about what looms ahead. Our minds become lost in the past or the future and it affects how we feel about ourselves, others, and the world around us.  Awareness, acceptance and being open and curious of the present moment is integral to a mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness – A Way of Being

Mindfulness is not a technique, it is a way of ‘being’. It is when we choose to pay deliberate attention to the present moment in a non-judgmental way.

Mindfulness requires us to access our inner resources; the key to feeling centered lies within us, we just need a little help to unlock it. It’s simply paying attention to what you are thinking, feeling and doing at any given moment, rather than habitually reacting to situations. When you are mindful, you are choosing to turn down the dial of the internal and external chatter to unleash your inner sense of calm. This is a powerful resource.

 “……our habit of wanting to be somewhere else is so strong. Weve distracted ourselves from the present for so many moments, for so many years, even lifetimes.
